It’s ‘flog’, not ‘frog’ – they should at least use basic Engrish spelling

Everybody sold off the stock of the rusty limited company, so now the fish soup is all they can get.

Fresh goat tackle must be the local version of prairie oysters.

This is what happens when you outsource translation to a Chinese company.

Even the French version looks like it may have been made in China. 😕

This is proof that the French don’t hate the English.
Why else would they have made this menu more enjoyable than the food !

Norman treated frogs the way he treated women… he’d always go straight for their thighs.

His friend Choco Lott, on the other hand, would only go straight *to* a women’s thighs! 🙂

Ok got it. “sa rouille”

S.A. = Société anonyme (limited corporation)

sa = its

rouille = rusty, rust-colored. Also, a rust-colored, garlicky sauce that goes with fish soup.

poor norman. no one could save him anymore from the giant, tentacled eldritch abomination of the frog’s leg.

The way “rusty limited company” got its way onto the menu (“sa rouille” means “garlic sauce” in this context but also means “its rust” literally; “S.A.” is how the French equivalent of a limited company is abbreviated) reminds me of a mistake a friend of mine once made at school in France: they said, in a history presentation,
“L’empire romain a été fondé en 27 Colombie-Britannique.”
See the fabulous mistake, Francophones?
